come into the u.s. treasury, and the republicans say you got that at the end of december to avoid the fiscal cliff, no more increase in tax revenue. they can adjust loopholes, whatever, but if they do that, they lower the tax rate. if there's no more tax revenues coming in and they hold firm to that, can there be a deal? >> no. if everybody holds firm, we are where we were before the charm offensive. i think that depends what you think the point was. if the point was to come up with a big deal, i don't know that that's possible, and the president doesn't know if that's possible and neither do republicans. and by the way, let's also point out he talked to democrats that don't want to touch entitlements. it becomes where do you cut from medicare, cut more from hospitals and doctors? there are multiple problems on the policy front. i think it becomes harder to demonize your opponent when you have a little lunch with them, you talked, you see they're human beings. in terms of moving forward on a big deal, i don't think that will happen. i can see next year the president going i tried
